Kale Quinoa Bowl

imageWe spent the weekend out of town, eating out for every meal so when we got home we were all craving something light and healthier. I found a recipe through Buzzfeed and made several changes to it, and we really enjoyed the end result. I think it would be even better with grilled chicken or shrimp.

Kale Quinoa Bowl

2 c water

1 c quinoa

1 bunch of kale

juice and zest of one orange

2 green onions, chopped

1/2 c feta

1/2 c pecans, toasted and chopped

salt & pepper to taste

Boil the water and add the quinoa, cook for 20 minutes on simmer with the lid on. Add the kale and cook for another 3-5 minutes, until most of the liquid is gone. In a bowl, pour the quinoa and kale mixture and add all ingredients. Serve warm or cold. Serves 3.
